Wordless Wednesday — Up a Tree

Wordless Wednesday - Jackson in a tree

Actually this picture doesn’t even begin to show the size of this tree or how high Jackson climbed! Jackson has been climbing trees since he was four and so I was surprisingly calm until he got near the top. Then my blood pressure rose and I insisted he get.down.right.now. (The getting down process took some time! He climbed really high!)

Post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL)

Here is a fun thumbnail linky…

But if you prefer the old style, you can use this linky:

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

      Thanks! I was wondering whether or not to post it. He got so much higher and the tree was so big that it didn’t really capture it that well. So thanks!

    I adore climbing trees! Our grandchildren recently had the opportunity to climb a huge oak tree and we have awesome photos from the adventure! I bet Jackson would love your photo framed and hanging on the wall of his bedroom! Happy WW!

    Wow, great shot Janice!! Love the light and the height!
    Nice rhyming, eh? lol
    What kind of camera do you have again? What lens?
    A girls’ gotta make her wish-list, right?

    Have a great week,

      Thanks!!! I have a Canon 50D and an L series 24-70mm lens. The lens is really nice – I had wanted it for years!!! And I use Lightroom to add that extra ummph. :)

      Thanks! Yes – I really like the sunlight at the bottom. It made it feel like he was climbing higher than the sun. (Which it felt like to a nervous mom!)
      And thanks for the feedback – I wasn’t sure if it was a “good enough” shot. I am tough on myself for WW.

    I am so afraid of the day when our son decides to start climbing trees. It is important to let them explore, and I climbed trees as a child, but still it is scary when they get up so high.

      My son climbs up two feet at two and I get nervous. I am not ready for extreme climbing yet.

      I should not typed this early in the morning.

    Oh, boys and their adventures! What makes blogging win out over being overprotective? The fact that the shot may be better if he goes up another foot or two so we put overprotectiveness aside and encourage him to climb higher!!

    My kids love climbing trees and it always gives me a heart attack to see them up so high. My nerves don’t settle until they are back down on the ground. I always picture the worst….probably because I am terribly afraid of heights. Strange that my kids didn’t get that from me.

    LOL I love your reaction to Get down. Now. Mine would have been exactly the same! My oldest is a competitie gymnast and is pretty sure she can climb anything. I often find myself holding my breath as she tests her limits..and mine:)
    Great capture!

    That is such a great photo, I love how the sun is shining through the tree branches.
    It reminds me of how my sister and I used to climb trees when we were little – good times!
